Cleansing

The ocean

called to her

to heal the

impurities and

insecurities

washing them

away

like foam

on the shore

Swallow

Holding

back

words

feels like

having birds

in a locked

cage

in your

chest.

Analogy

Love is like

a magic trick

best experienced

without

questioning

the how.

Inception

Poems

are puzzles

of interlocking

pieces of

Imagery

Sound

and sentiment

Remedy

Looking for an antidote

for being jaded

To discern wisdom

from cynicism

seeking

healing

light

to wield

together

the broken pieces.

Friends

If their words

spark life

breathe air

to your soul’s Fire

keep them

Facing fears

Negotiating with

the unknown

listening to

silent answers

following faith

to a new

familiar.
